RE: Altru and education programs

November 22nd 2017

Re: RE: Altru and education programs We recently moved to Altru and VolunteerHub from Patron’s Edge and Volgistics. Altru is used for constituent tracking, daily admission and membership sales, attendance records, event tickets, and tour bookings. I am directly involved with processing tour requests and, after a painful learning curve, Altru has streamlined our process in some ways, but I had to find a few workarounds. For the initial tour requests that come in, we still use a webform outside of Altru. I then inpu ...Continue Reading

Re: RE: Altru and education programs We use Altru here at MCA Denver. We had previously used Volgistics and Raiser's Edge. For the most part, Altru is pretty easy since everything is in the same system. However, we have had to use some workarounds to make it better for us–for most adult programs, we use EventBrite for ticketing (because it has greater flexibility for what we need), and then import the final numbers into Altru after the event. Also, we stopped using the internal communications system for our weekly eB ...Continue Reading

I can’t speak to Altru, but I do have experience with Volgistics. We used Volgistics for volunteer management for 2 years, and this last year we switched over to TimeCounts. Volgistics, in our experience, was not user friendly for many of our docents (some of which aren’t comfortable using computers for anything but email). In fact, I received constant complaints about it and eventually it became more work to try to manage docents with Volgistics than manually scheduling docents myself. TimeCounts is not perfect, but it ...Continue Reading

Hi, We use Altru for online registrations for daily sales and education programs. We use it in a couple ways. We have a field trip form that people submit to us, then all the information is entered into Altru. Additionally, patrons can purchase tickets for programs through our website. That portion seems to go fairly smoothly. I don’t know what systems you are using now, but I know that Altru has made A LOT of work for my coworker, who is responsible for entering all of the school reservations. This is a pretty ...Continue Reading

Altru and education programs

November 21st 2017

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Our institution is looking at converting to Altru by Blackbaud. At this point we are basically shopping and debating to what depth we want dive into Altru. My colleagues in Development and the store are looking into their own areas but I’m curious about any institutions that use Altru for education programs. Specifically, do you use Altru for group tours, volunteers, and/or class registrations? If you do, what is your experience? I definitely want to know the good, the bad, and the ugly t ...Continue Reading
